Earthen vessels. July 9

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of Us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

Ever wonder, since God is so great and Christ lives in my heart by faith, also The Holy Spirit dwells in me. Why do I sometimes make mistakes, feel weak, don’t accomplish all I set out to do. Well we do have a great treasure within us, in Christ Jesus but we also carry it about in an old earthen vessel (our flesh, the human nature). We do get disappointed with ourselves or others, at times of frailty. However there is a reason your not Mr or Miss universe. And that reason is that the Glory, honor, praise and high esteem will go to God and not any man Or woman. You get to know any saint even those we would consider a great saint and you will find some frailness or weakness or leak in the vessel of some sort. God doesn’t want your confidence in man. He wants it in him. As a matter of fact he doesn’t want your confidence even to be in yourself but in Christ Jesus the lord. If you think about it, this is most wonderful. Because the weight of the world is not on our shoulders, for we simply can’t do it. It is on God and his Son and they are more than able. So today cast your burden, weakness’s, failures on him. Trust and obey and rest in the written fact. He is all we need.
